And xbox one is bigger and needs a huge brick? I don't get it, is this a heat issue or is it because of kinect? I really though that bricks would be so last gen... i guess i'd have to put up with it.

MS has had heating issues in the past. Putting the brick in the console doesn't seem like a good idea, to be honest.

Hope the PS4 doesn't suffer from "internal brick".

It's smaller, it's components are superior graphically, and there's no brick dangling from a power cord on the outside. It's extremely weird.

Three options here; Sony's engineers are superior, the XboxOne is being rushed, or Microsoft is worried enough about overheating again to the degree that they're playing it safe with a bulky design. Could be one of those, or a combination of them. Considering Forza5(first party dev) half-baked release, the last minute upclock to the GPU, and cutting their launch markets by over third, and it's likely that it's a little of everything.

Well i would say 3 and 1, MS lost alot of money with the RRoD issue and are playing it safe it seems, plus Sony is a Hardware company at heart so they have amazing engineer team.

But do i find it wierd Sony is small and requires no power brck like the TC asked? No I don't its a non issue.
